Objective: The EP who receives a patient from another setting of care or provider of care or believes an encounter is relevant should perform medication reconciliation.
Measure: The EP performs medication reconciliation for more than 50 percent of transitions of care in which the patient is transitioned into the care of the EP.
Exclusion: Any EP who was not the recipient of any transitions of care during the EHR reporting period.
This objective and measure aligns with Menu Measure 7 in Stage 1 Meaningful Use. There are no changes to the objective or measure beyond the transition from the menu to core set.

Standards and Certification Final Rule
§ 170.314(b)(4) Clinical Information Reconciliation. Enable a user to electronically reconcile the data that represent a patient’s active medication, problem, and medication allergy list as follows. For each list type:
(i) Electronically and simultaneously display (i.e., in a single view) the data from at least two list sources in a manner that allows a user to view the data and their attributes, which must include, at a minimum, the source and last modification date.
(ii) Enable a user to create a single reconciled list of medications, medication allergies, or problems.
(iii) Enable a user to review and validate the accuracy of a final set of data and, upon a user’s confirmation, automatically update the list.
Depending on the type of certification issued to the EHR technology, it will also have been certified to the certification criterion adopted at 45 CFR 170.314 (g)(1), (g)(2), or both, in order to assist in the calculation of this meaningful use measure.
